You would need to discuss with an employment law attorney in more detail to be sure, but this definitely sounds like a wage violation. Please reach out to an employment law attorney as soon as possible to discuss what options you have.
The answer is going to depend on the terms of the Trust. The same holds true for the tax consequences. I recommend speaking with an attorney, either via Zoom or in person, to go through things. A detailed analysis of the Trust will be needed to determine what actions would be most beneficial....Read more »

Yes. Desertion, which also may be referred to as abandonment, is a divorce ground in many states (including Ohio). When one spouse leaves for one year without the consent of the other, this is considered desertion. The length of time required for divorce may vary from state to state, but in Ohio it...Read more »
The short answer is, it depends. The devil is in the details unfortunately. For a definitive answer you will need to sit down with an attorney for a full case review where he or she can parse out the situation in detail.
This is not a case, rather a debate. I am told "No judge will uphold a confidentiality contract if the breaching party was threatened to do so". I told them the entire purpose of the agreement is to protect the party being held in confidentiality, especially if the breach leads to their... Read more »
Your question is unclear. "No judge will uphold a confidentiality contract if the breaching party was threatened to do so" doesn't make sense. What is the breaching party being threatened against? Signing the contract? Breach? If a contract with signed under duress, it is invalid....Read more »
I don't see a question here. If your father is infirm and/or mentally vulnerable you may want to get in contact with adult protective services. If he is stealing, contact law enforcement. For a full case review you will need to sit down with an attorney to review the facts in detail....Read more »

I've been renting at the same place for 7 years. There are now new owners who want to do walkthroughs while I'm still residing there. They raised my rent by $250 and want $1000 security deposit. They have now issued a 30 day notice to vacate. It's so unfair because I have nowhere to... Read more »
Look to the politicians you vote for. They are the ones that create the laws. If you are renting and the owner chooses to terminate the lease, you need to go. For assistance in finding a new place you can always hire a realtor.
You should contact a family law lawyer in your area to discuss this and the entirety of the division of your property between you and your ex-----you need to know what's available to you and your options. Good luck.
That's equivalent to taking property away from him or her. If they do not voluntarily agree to give or sell you their interest in the property your options are very limited. Being abusive and addicted to drugs does not mean you can take away their things. If you are stuck in a bad situation...Read more »
